"Dark, Loud, Dirty"

This street is not unlike many in in this particular area of the west side. Particularly between 8th ave and 6th ave, you will find a scattering of delis and hardware stores, and not much else. This is a fairly convenient area to live in due to its proximity to Penn Station and therefore, many of the main transportation lines. However, it is dingy, dirty, dark, and noisy. For some reason, there isn’t a lot of street lighting in the area, and walking around here at night is not too pleasant. One perk of this street, is that it is currently being used as a film set for some scenes of a popular show on ABC. However, besides a few minutes of star watching, you don’t really get much more out of that. There is a pretty decent Falafel place between 6th and 7th ave, but besides that your choices for food lie in the “fast” category.

"West 28th St"

West 28th Street is close to the following metro stations: A, C, E, L at 34th Street, Penn Station, 1,2,3 at 28th Street, an the B,D,F,N, J, R, N, W at 34th Street & Herald Square, 6 at 28th. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is light, and it is a good neighborhood for all people! You'll be very close to the nearby Chelsea Park and close to Madison Square Garden! This is a great place to get to the know the city, but might be a little too touristy and impersonal for some, but I hail its convenience!

"Catch the Flower Market Before it's Gone"

In the 1930's New York's Flower Market was one most active markets. Back then it was customary to send flowers for nearly every occasion. Historically the Flower Market has been located on Sixth Ave between 26th and 28th Street. Last time I visited some vendore were still there but rumors of evivtion notices filled the air. It's quite sad this market was always full of life and color. I'll never understand New Yorkers ordering each other flowers on the internet when they could take a short and have a live person whip up an arrangement for a fraction of the cost. Hope you catch it before it's gone if not spend a moment to reflect the loss of another New York Tradition.
